Subject: Tour Best
High Time, Shakedown, Lost Sailor>Saint, Stella Blue, Going Down The Road and Uncle John's Band are excellent! This show was well played, good vibes all around. Jerry was really on his game and Phil is engaged...
Subject: What a long strange trip it was.
30 years ago today, this was my first show, and it still remains my favorite. So glad to hear the soundboard after 25 years of audience recordings. Thanks!

Subject: I need this board!
Can anyone help me out? I have Aud and this was one of my top shows of all time. I was there and i did say woah! for the rest of the year and forever after this show. It just sticks out for me.
Subject: almost sounds 77ish (mix wise)
Passenger packs phil's boom

Subject: GREAT RECORDING
ANOTHER GREAT CLEAN-UP JOB BY CHARLIE MILLER
Subject: Great '81
I think this has to rate as one of the best '81's I have heard. Recording is excellent, until Stella (as noted), but evern Stella till the end is more than listenable.
1st set highlights:
Friend of the Devil is really hot, in particular Brent and Jerry really get off hard.
Big River has a really tight quaility with hot Brent solo to boot.
CC Rider fabulous, with a High Time tease between CC and Brown-eyed Women.
The rest of the set is a really, really good performance with wonderful listenablility due to the great recording.
2nd Set highlights:
Nice Shakedown opener.
I little bit faster tempo Lost/Saint makes for a great rendition. Lost/Saint is really a highlight for the band through this entire year. You could tell all members were digging on this combo big time.
Saint goes into an always cool Spanish Jam.
Stella is killer version. I'd love to hear the "Soundboard" recording of this song.
GDTRFB through UJB all really great listening.
After listening to 5 or 6 shows from '81 over the last 2 weeks, one undeniable truism is that Brent has made his mark in the band with a combo of great rhythm section accompaniment, soulful and generally in harmony backgound vocals and really sizzling leads, with a series of really good writing not far off in the future. Since 4 and 1/2* (for the slightly less crisp patch from Stell onward) is not an option, I go with a 5* on this one.
